    Hi Morris et al,

    We are coming down for the weekend from Stockholm, skiing Friday to Monday. It seems on PA 11 that tree skiing is the way to go this weekend, do you have any recommended resorts for this, we are quite flexible where to go?

    Also, thanks a lot to wepowder for a great service, without you we are lost!

    Cheers
    Anders

    It seems as it will be pretty cold, so I guess Bregenzerwald and Kleinwalsertal will be good options .
    If you're going to Geneva, I can recommend the tree skiing in Ovronnaz, Evolene and Vercorin. None of them are very crowded and seems to get a decent amount of snow for your weekend.

    Cheers,

    If you go to Geneva I would also check out La Thuile, great tree skiing and seems to get a lot of snow now.

    Well, no unfortunately not... 😞
    However, flying out to Munich the 31st, hoping for good snow and the longterm seems to look like a northern stau at that time. But we'll see what Morris comes up with!

    If Geneva, you could also check out Sainte Foy and Val Cenis/Termignon. All three with great tree skiing and gets their fair share of the storm.

    Thanks Boys, appreciate all the tips, it may be that we try out Courmayeur and La Thuile. We are praying that it wont be to warm tomorrow for the tree lines..

    I'm also planning for this weekend, was mainly thinking of flying to Zürich and then riding Sat/Sun!
    Are there any more suggestions for that area perhaps? What I like with Zürich is the easy access to resorts by train!

    And if someone wants an extra snowboarder in their quest for pow I'm all in! 😉

    I am in Zurich as well. Weather looks the same everywhere, snowing, very cloudy and high avalanche risk. What about visibility then?

    Voralrberg - Andelbuch, gargellen or silvretta motafon.. St anton is overrated 😋. Maria alm/hochkonig is good for tree runs (lots of snow) also fieberbrunn is nice. in Steiermarken you should go to Krippenstein, there are also some skiroutes down from dachstein (hallstater gletcher) down to hallstatt (2100m altimeters difference) they are easy but beatifull 😃
    The object in life is not to be on the side of the majority,

    Hi, related to this tree skiing topic, any good advice on the Italian side? I've been to Gressoney and it offers some nice tree runs! How about the northern parts of Piedmont (Morris always talks about the larch trees in that area)? Looks like the coming week we'll see a lot of snow there!
